Series produced by The Story Exchange

Series image

In its new season, The Story Exchange Podcast is telling the stories of women entrepreneurs who are tackling pressing social issues and use the power of business to do "Good on the Ground."

The 2017 series responds to a changing political environment in the U.S. and expected cuts to social programs by a Republican-controlled government. It also reflects our conviction that women, in particular, will step up to address growing and urgent needs. Watch this space for stories about inspiring women who are already working in the trenches, doing good on the ground.

The Story Exchange, founded in 2011, is a nonprofit media organization dedicated to telling the personal and professional stories of women business owners — and to exploring the role of entrepreneurship in advancing women’s economic independence. Through our videos, articles and podcast, we showcase the often-overlooked entrepreneurial women around the world who are contributing to their communities and collectively making an impact on the global economy.
